The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Illumination Awards are in for 2010, and the lighting designs are truly magnificent.  Here is a selection of photos from the winning lighting designs (feel free to comment below on which is your favorite!):

Lightcatcher Museum: The Paul Waterbury Award for Outdoor Lighting Design

Izunome Tokyo: The Edwin F. Guth Memorial Award for Interior Lighting Design

I think my personal favorite is the Hard Rock Café, which received its award specifically for the guitar chandelier.  The award read, “for the creative application of LEDs utilized close to the crystals which resulted in an energy efficient artistic use of light.”  This particular Hard Rock Café is in Orlando – wouldn’t you love to visit?
